Wind power generation reaches 19,000 megawatts and breaks records in Brazil

The value represents 27.8% of national demand; country must qualify to work in the production of offshore wind energy.

Wind energy production in Brazil reached more than 19,000 megawatts of energy in 2023, according to data from the National System Operator (ONS). The value represents 27.8% of the national demand and marks a record in energy generation, which was reached on July 4. The last record in the sector had been achieved in October 2022. On an annual average, 17,110 megawatts per month are generated with wind energy in Brazil, which is equivalent to 23.4% of national demand. New records are to be broken with the high wind season starting in July.
Soon, Brazil should qualify to work with offshore wind energy, that is, at sea. The government’s perspective is that by the end of the year there will already be a regulatory framework for offshore production. Petrobras intends to invest in the sector in Brazil and abroad.
